Commemorating The 20th Anniversary Of The Historic Dayton Peace Accords


Finalized on November 21, 1995 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, the Dayton Peace Accords ended the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The war, which had lasted more than three years, cost 100,000 lives and drove 2 million people from their homes. Current and former world leaders are participating in events this week to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Peace Accords.

Joining us for a look at that diplomatic success and the lasting effect it has had on that region are President and C.E.O. of McCance Consulting Group and Dayton Peace Accords at 20 Committee Chair, John McCance; and Bosnian native studying at the University of Dayton as a Dayton Peace Accords Fellow, Dzeneta Begic.
